Discover the Truth

“The  culture  in which we live is very secularized  and pretends to carry on as if God did not exist; it also teaches us that the truth is whatever I fashion it to be and what’s good is whatever pleases me.  Of course, this is false. As Pope Benedict XVI said in his address to the Roman Curia this past year, such ideas come from a false notion of freedom, which leaves people enslaved to various material realities and, as a result, profoundly unhappy.

What we need to discover is the Truth which is revealed in such a striking way in the life of Christ, whose total obedience to the will of the Father, total obedience to the way that God the Father shows us,both in Ten Commandments and in the Beatitudes, is the way of pure and selfless love, is the only way to our happiness.

If  you look in the Gospels for that virtue which most characterizes the love of Christ for the Father and for all mankind for whom He poured out His life, it is obedience- “I have come not to do my will but the will of Him who sent me.”-Christ was obedient even to death on the Cross.

Prayer for Humility

Prayer for Humility


Oh my Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you,

Teach me the wisdom of true Humility,

Give me the courage to accept from the Holy Spirit

Just what was, is, to be.

Let my thoughts be always Charitable

And help me to be Obedient

and give a Good Example to others.

Oh, my beloved, thou also My God,

Make my heart a flame of pure love for you.

Give me this virtue of Humility

To Know, Understand and live my life

In order to become like Jesus

At the hour and moment

at midnight in Bethlehem in piercing cold.

Forgive me Jesus, for all my weaknesses and temptations,

And help me to renounce the world, the flesh and the devil,

in order to live in a closer unity with my heavenly Father,

so that I may unite myself with you.

Amen.
